I recently found an old journal of mine from when I was around 7-8. Instead of normal kid things it was a diary of me trying to lose weight. I also remember being around the same age and tying scarves around my waist under my shirt to make my stomach look smaller. When do you all remember first starting to diet?

I started doing exercises to make my stomach flatter when I was 7-8, maybe 6-7? I forgot what age specifically but it was definitely before I was 8 because I recall doing like a hundred situps in commercial breaks with my mom in the older house before we moved. But I wasn't trying to actually lose weight until I was about 15. It's weird because I wanted a slimmer body but never made the connection of physical space occupation and weight until about 15 years old.


Just let me relapse without judgement

I think it must have been 16 for me, but it had only been "wow I really should lose weight" up until this year where my ed surfaced

I started purging after meals occasionally when I was 10/11, stopped eating lunch or breakfast when I was 12. I wasn't an active dieter/trying to lose weight. It was a slow & unintentional start until I hit 16 years old and really let loose on the restricting and purging demons and became obsessed with being empty and clean and pure.

 

I don't think I focused on being "thin" until I was 18, but ever since that's been more important than "clean". I don't even know if I remember correctly though, my teenage years are a proper blur these days.


I spent this year as a ghost. ___________________________________

8 or 9 probably. I found some old lunch menus where I wrote fractions next to each food item, it was how much I was planning to eat of it. Kinda sad now that I think about it.

I remember being aware of my weight and worried about being fat at 7 years old, and that's around the time I started skipping meals. But I think I started to really weigh myself regularly at 9 years old.


So leave me in the cold

Wait until the snow covers me up
So I cannot move
So I'm just embedded in the frost
Then leave me in the rain
Wait until my clothes cling to my frame
Wipe away your tear stains
Thought you said you didn't feel pain

 

Your head is so numb

That nervous breath you try to hide
Between the motions
That trembling tender little sigh

June 5th, 2020: I've lost 3kg(!) weight loss has been slow but finally getting somewhere

Hoping to lose another 5 kg now that weight loss is easier without birth control

June 23rd, 2020: I've been plateauing on this weight, just when I thought I was making progress

July 8th, 2020: Currently on a low-carb/high-protein diet

July 27th, 2020: I've lost a total of more than 5kg,

and I am definitely losing weight faster with a low-carb/high-protein diet

19 years old when I first gained weight. I used to be naturally skinny. I still don't get what happened to me tbh.
